Amplifying Your Film's Educational Outreach with Journeys in Film
Journeys in Film offers filmmakers the opportunity to reach an untapped market with our innovative approach to bringing films into the classroom to support educators in engaging conversations on tolerance, inclusion and appreciate the enriching world of cross-cultural storytelling.
Active in global education for over a decade, Journeys in Film's recent film partnerships have included He Named Me Malala and The Prophet. We harness the power of film to create educational curricula that inspires learning and prepare the next generation to be globally competent citizens. We believe teaching through film has the power mitigate existing attitudes of cultural bias and racism, cultivate human empathy and compassion, develop a deeper knowledge of global issues and current challenges, and prepare young people for effective participation in the world community. We've also recently partnered with the University of Southern California's Rossier School of Education to expand education resources on teaching with film.
Producers, directors and film outreach professionals, please join Founder and Executive Director Joanne Ashe and Martine McDonald, Director of Programs, for a casual dialogue on educational outreach, fair use rights access for your audiences and an overview of what we provide to educators and filmmakers transforming the the world through film.

Our team of top-notch educational experts, subject-area specialists and editors develop the highest quality standards-based curricula for teaching core academic subjects through each film.
Customized workshops for educators and administrators with specialized instruction help to maximize our prepared curricula and teach them how to integrate film into core educational standards for all subjects.
Educators, leaders of after-school programs, boys and girls clubs, church groups, and home schoolers receive free online access to the curriculum guides. Â We promote each new film-based curriculum guide through our website, online advertising, extensive email list, and social media.
